John the Bard gets the details right, except that for me who came from Dyckman Street, it was too 207th Street centered. The southern part of Inwood had a whole other group of drinking establishments, and stories and characters to go along with them, besides Garryowens. But, I quibble.
Everyone said they were going to write a book about the neighborhood, but here's a man who has actually done it, and a nice piece of work it is too. From the poem about the drinking, to the mystery novel taking place mostly in Park Terrace, it's a wonderful piece of reminiscence. And the story of Chickie Donahue (who was in my class in Good Shepherd for a few months) going to Vietnam with a case of beer, needed to be recorded. All in all an easy read and a pleasant way to pass a few hours. There may not be many of us left from those days (John is right about the ones who couldn't get off the drink), but any who are still with us will enjoy this book no end.
